If you believe the whole staring-at-the-sun-makes-you-go-blind thing (which is actually true), you’re probably not doing a whole lot of sun-gazing. But it’s a real marvel: The sun warms our planet every day, provides the light by which we see and is necessary for life on Earth . It can also cause cell death and make us blind. It could fit 1.3 million Earths inside its sphere [source: SpaceDaily ]. It produces poem-worthy sunsets and as much energy as 1 trillion megaton bombs every second [source: Boston Globe ].

All of this, and our sun is just a plain old average star , by universal standards. It’s really just proximity that makes it so special to Earth. We wouldn’t be here if the sun weren’t so close.

In this article, we'll examine the fascinating world of our nearest star. We will look at the parts of the sun, find out how it makes light and heat, and explore its major features.
